Angolan club qualify despite draw



Recreativo Libolo of Angola secured the CAF Confederation Cup quarterfinals place up for grabs Sunday despite being held 0-0 at home by Smouha of Egypt in the last Group C match.

The club from Calulo, a town 275 kilometres southeast of Luanda, spent much of the match defending as Smouha sought the win that would give them the last-eight spot.

Smouha had several penalty appeals rejected in a tense closing stage and squandered two scoring chances during five minutes of stoppage time.

Libolo finished with seven points from six matches, one more than Smouha and three less than Group C winners Zesco United of Zambia.

Al Hilal Obeid, the leaders ahead of the final series of mini-league fixtures, were disqualified on Friday after Fifa banned Sudan for government interference in football.

Zesco face SuperSport United of South Africa in the quarterfinals during September and Libolo meet title-holders TP Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
